[SACC-L] twitter, sandwiches, and Florida
I find the day-long postings on SACC-L about sandwiches rather amusing.
I get so much flak for doing the Twitter thing, because....apparently
according to some SACC'ers, most of what is on Twitter nobody cares about,
such as what they are eating for breakfast.
Then today, I am inundated with menu selections for the Friday lunch at
SACCfest. By some of those very same people who give me flak. Now, by
following SACC-L I know who is having turkey, and who is having ham; who
is having roast beef and who is hoping tuna; and who wants aeoli and who
I'm having turkey, but I'm not putting that on Twitter.
Capilano closed down for the duration of the Winter Olympics. So, I went
to Florida. Florida was interesting. I'm not a big fan of theme parks, but
I did enjoy a day at Cocoa Beach. I like drinking beer on the beach and
listening to loud rock and roll. The most interesting part of Florida for
me was the discovery of entire communities of old people. Really old
people driving on the streets in golf carts. I wonder if anybody has done
a study of golf carts as a symbol of status in Florida. Some of them were
really decked out, like with mag wheels. Amazing.
I knew there were a lot of old people in Florida, but not THAT many. I
found a lot of old people because I rented a car and drove and kind of got
lost a few times. I would take some turns and like find myself in a
Twilight Zone episode, or maybe a Monty Python skit. Entire communities of
really old people.
So, one of the nicest things about Florida was that I was relatively
young. And thin. In Vancouver, I am an old fat guy. In those hidden parts
of Florida, I was young and thin. Nice. I might retire to Florida.
